Park Avenue Armory will continue its 2020 Artists Studio series on Saturday evening, April 4, 2020 with a program by avant-garde trumpeter Jaimie Branch and Rome Prize-winning sculptor Carol Szymanski, teaming up for the first time to present the Phonemophonic Alphabet Brass Band at 7pm and 9pm. Szymanski and her obsession with the shape of sound will fill the intricate architecture of the Veterans Room with a collection of instrument sculptures consisting of 26 brass horns whose shapes are based on the alphabet. The aural animation of this installation will be led by Branch and joined with a large ensemble of fellow brass musicians. Presented in dialogue with the eclectic design of the Veterans Room and curated by MacArthur “Genius” Jason Moran, the Artists Studio features a range of contemporary performances across genres by artists who blur the lines of artistic categorization. The 2020 series includes a diverse mix of artists and musicians whose practices defy categorization and expressly mirror the innovative spirit of the exceptional young artists present at the room’s inception. Tickets at $45 (plus fees) may be purchased by phone through the Armory Box Office, Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm at (212) 933-5812 and online at armoryonpark.org.
